    ​I have worked at Worldwide Recruitment Solutions Ltd for 3.5 years as an Account Manager within the Marine Division. Having come from a financial solutions background the world of recruitment was completely new to me, however I haven’t looked back since!From my very first day at WRS the company were so welcoming and have been very supportive over the last few years, I can honestly say the team are not just colleagues, but have become friends too. I genuinely love my job although there are certainly challenging days and weeks. My role entails liaising and building relationships with clients and crew, issuing contracts, arranging travel, visas and any required training, keeping the rota and pay tables updated, processing timesheets and expenses, and any other general queries.WRS are a great company to work for, the management team are approachable, open and honest in all situations, and are always looking to promote within. I have recently been promoted to Principle Account Manager so am delighted my hard work has paid off and been recognised.

    My journey with WRS started in May 2021when Covid restrictions were starting to lift. I moved from Derry in Northern Ireland to Manchester to join WRS as a Trainee Recruitment Consultant with no prior experience or knowledge in Recruitment or the Marine sector. From day one I was given extensive training from our dedicated L&D department, which gave me the foundations of Recruitment. I also got support from a mentor, in my case an experienced Recruiter called Stuart, who honed my knowledge in the Marine industry. Thankfully with the training and advice given to me, I was able to make a quick start as a recruiter, achieving some early success by making my first placement within my first 2 weeks. I noticed quickly that recruitment wasn’t always full of highs, there were many challenges to overcome too. The continuous weekly support meetings with HR and Stuart provided me a regular platform to continually develop and in just 4 months I was promoted to Recruitment consultant. By December of the same year, I was given an opportunity to work within the Business Development team. My initial training in BD was provided by L&D - it was like starting anew once again! I was impressed with the support I received in my training which really prepares you for every aspect of your recruitment career. Our Head of HR, Emma, checked in with me weekly in my new role while we continued to do regular BD training sessions. There are many challenges in Business Development that I am learning to overcome, and Matthew Spells and Scott Redfern, my two colleagues on the BD team, are always ready to give me advice whenever I need assistance – it’s amazing to tap into their 20+ years of Maritime BD experience. I am looking forward to continuing my business development career as I know I am only at the start of this long journey. With the guidance of my colleagues at WRS, I know I will always have the support I need at hand.

    ​WRS has given me the opportunity to continue working in the industry I love. Before I joined, I was working as a Marine officer but decided I wanted a change. I was sure I could use my previous experience to become a successful recruiter. With the guidance and support of WRS I have progressed from Trainee to Senior Recruitment Consultant and am a mentor to many of our new starters in the division. Working with a great bunch of people really helps and I enjoy the variety my role offers. Having the responsibility of training and mentoring new employees has helped my growth significantly and I am thankful to WRS for giving me the opportunity. What’s also great about working at WRS is the flexibility which enables me to split my time between home and the office, I do like to work remotely but also love being with the team where we can share our experiences.

    ​WRS offer a transparent work culture, the managers and mentors treat everyone as valued team members. Stuart McNeill has been an excellent mentor for me, right from the day I joined WRS. He has always been with me and made me feel comfortable, guiding me to handle my daily tasks by preparing short videos or tutorials. He is there for me anytime of the day, even though I am working in a different country and time. Working remotely has not been an issue for me as WRS have provided all the training and support I need to work efficiently from my home.

    ​"Joining WRS after coming from a long-standing job of 7 years was a big and scary change for me. Nine weeks in and I am so happy I took the leap, WRS are my kind of people! From the interviews, to joining, everyone has been so welcoming, they all love helping in any way they can, with smiles on their faces. Everyone gets on really well with each other, and I’m looking forward to a long career at WRS. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for me at such a well-established company."
